Pew Survey Finds Nearly 20 Percent of Online Americans Tweet by PC World: Yahoo! Tech

Hmm…  Good thing you can now use Bing to improve the Twitter stream signal-to-noise ratio

A new report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project claims that 19 percent, or nearly 1 in 5, Americans who use the Internet also use Twitter or some other social networking status update service to keep in touch and share information about themselves with others.

The survey also found a correlation between the number of wireless devices a person owns and the likelihood that they also use a status update service like Twitter. Only 10 percent of users with one Internet-connected device claimed to use Twitter, while nearly 40 percent of those with four connected devices use status updates to communicate. In fact, there is essentially a 10 percent per device relationship, with two devices coming in at 19 percent, and three devices at 28 percent.
